Koppers Cleanup Delay
They're calling it Gainesville's "BP oil spill..."
A local group has asked the feds to hold off on the clean-up plan for the Koppers site.
Protect Gainesville Citizens, a non-profit organization aimed at
educating citizens about the Koppers Superfund site, wanted city leaders to ask the EPA to hold off on issuing the remediation plan for cleanup.
The group wanted more time to receive a $50,000 EPA grant to hire a "technical advisor." The advisor would help them interpret the EPA's cleanup plan.
"Not only has the epa not given us the $50,000 grant for the technical advisor, but also they haven't published the required community involvement plan, and they haven't given us the required library of documents," said Kayla Sosnow, a member of "Protect Gainesville Citizens."
The EPA agreed to extend the release of the plan until July 15.
